The 9th annual Harry Elkes Ride held on September 17, 2022, at The Hub in Brant Lake was a resounding success. The day started out cool and foggy but later cleared for some great fall Adirondack scenery.
There were 133 riders broken up as follows:
|Route||Distance (miles)||Number of Participants|

|Schroon River- Bean Road Gravel Loop||18||6|
In addition to New York there were riders from Massachusetts, New Jersey, Maryland, New Hampshire, and Florida.
Several cycling groups participated, including Saratoga Cycling, Kroghan, Adirondack Multisport, ATP Racing and Adirondack Runners.
